72 long-term care facilities across 27 states were recognized for meeting "rigorous" performance and quality standards.
The American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) has awarded 72 long-term care providers with the Silver Achievement in Quality Award.
Silver is the second of three quality distinctions for the honor awarded by the organization, recognizing long-term care facilities that meet the "rigorous" performance standards to improve the lives of their residents and staff.
"I am incredibly proud of our remarkable members for this achievement," Mark Parkinson, president and CEO of AHCA/NCAL, said in a statement.
"This recognition is a testament to their unwavering dedication, passion, and tireless efforts to deliver exceptional services, innovative solutions, and transformative care for their residents and staff,” he said. “Their impact is undeniable.”Silver is one of three distinctions for the organization's quality awards, with the others being bronze and gold. To earn the Silver Award, a facility must have previously received the Bronze Commitment to Quality Award.
Bronze honorees were announced at the beginning of June.
"We are delighted to honor these incredible providers for being recognized at the Silver level," Cathy Bergland, AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award board chair, said in a statement. "I applaud their resiliency and dedication to the quality journey and for this outstanding achievement."
Gold Quality Award recipients will be announced in August, and awards for all three distinctions will be presented during Delivering Solutions 23, the AHCA/NCAL Convention and Expo, October 1-4, 2023, in Denver, Colorado.
“This recognition is a testament to their unwavering dedication, passion, and tireless efforts to deliver exceptional services, innovative solutions, and transformative care for their residents and staff.”
